2019: APC will lose elections in Dogara’s hometown even if Buhari, Oshiomhole relocate there – PDP


The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Bogoro Local Government Area of Bauchi State, Daniel Komo, has said that the All Progressives Congress, APC, will lose the 2019 elections in the home town of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara.

He explained that this was because the PDP is the only accepted and popular party in the area.

Komo spoke with DAILY POST in an exclusive interview on Tuesday following PDP’s victory in the area during last Saturday’s senatorial bye-election.

He said, “I assured my party – PDP, that even if President Buhari and former Labour chairman, Adams Oshiomhole relocate to Bogoro ahead of 2019 elections, APC will not win Bogoro because our people have accepted PDP as the only political party.”

The PDP chairman further stated that Bogoro was a no-go area for the ruling party, as he lauded PDP’s giant strides in sixteen years of administration “unlike poverty, hunger and lack of justice under APC”.

He challenged the purported victory of the ruling party in the recent governorship election in Ekiti and Saturday’s bye-election in Bauchi, while describing the results as coup and attempt to truncate democracy in Nigeria.

“Vividly APC tried to rigged election in Bogoro but as defenders of democracy we vehemently resisted. But unfortunate INEC and security agents were used to disenfranchised over 80,000 voters in some LGAs,” Komo alleged.

The chairman further alleged that INEC was now in full support of the ruling party in vote buying and wondered why none of the actors was arrested in line with the electoral act.

He added, “Because INEC and security agencies know their roles in connivance with APC administration to truncate democracy same thing occurred in Bauchi bye-election like Ekiti, we will not accept it in 2019.”
